Hollins, 60, accused of brandishing firearm at couple Wednesday afternoon


ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (December 18, 2020) The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Arkansas City man early Wednesday afternoon in connection with a pair of aggravated assaults.

T.J. Hollins Jr., 60, was arrested on suspicion of two felony counts of aggravated assault and one felony count of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Hollins was booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $25,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City. He remained in custody at the time of this release.

A 55-year-old Arkansas City man and a 49-year-old Arkansas City woman, who live together, came to the police department at 3:13 p.m. Wednesday to report having had a firearm pointed at them.

Officers interviewed both victims and learned an altercation had ensued in which the suspect, later identified as Hollins, had emerged from a residence while brandishing a firearm at the couple. He allegedly leveled the weapon at the pair as they fled the neighborhood and returned to their vehicle.

Police gathered sufficient information to apply for a search warrant for the residence, where they retrieved the weapon in question following a search and then took Hollins into custody without incident.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
